Ricciardi, owner of the Philadelphia-based pie shop Magpie, presents more than 90 recipes for all things pie. The book is divided into four chapters: Flaky Piecrust; Fruity Pies; (Mostly) Creamy Pies; and Quiches, Potpies, and Other Savories. It not only covers must-know dough techniques and classic sweet and savory pieslemon curd, quiche Lorraine, roasted sweet potato pie, and apple piesbut adds a touch of whimsy with fun recipes such as Pie "Fries," an innovative way to use dough scraps; a pie milkshake; pie and ice cream in one; and a savory Old Bay Cheez-It topping, cleverly utilizing the popular snack cracker. Unique, herb-centric recipes such as basil cream pie, lavender crumb, berry custard thyme crumb pie, and rosemary crumb are welcome additions to this worthy collection. "Spin" sidebars offer easy variations on main recipes, such as turning the Breakfast Oatmeal Pie into a Tropical Oatmeal Pie with mango and toasted coconut, and transforming the Café Mocha Pie into a "nightcap" version with spirits. Full-color photos, step-by-step images, and a contemporary, clean design round out this stellar title. (Oct.)
